This came in a tweet on his Twitter account, the day after Israel welcomed a statement by the Saudi Muslim Scholars Association (official) describing the Brotherhood as terrorist.
Al-Qaradaghi attached a tweet posted by the Israeli account in Arabic on Twitter of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in which he said that we in Israel are pleased to see this approach against the exploitation of religion to incite and sedition.
The statement of the Council of Senior Scholars of Saudi Arabia has not met with approval or acceptance in our Arab and Islamic world except by the Zionist entity that usurped the lands of Arabs and Muslims, Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry commented, on Sunday, on the statement of Muslim scholars by saying that there is no doubt that all monotheistic religions came to cultivate love and familiarity among people .. We desperately need a speech calling for tolerance and mutual cooperation to advance the entire region.
And on Sunday, the Mufti of Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah Al Sheikh, considered the Muslim Brotherhood a lost sect and has nothing to do with Islam, confirming the statement of Muslim scholars, which sparked criticism and rejection of 18 religious bodies in the world.
A week ago, the (official) Saudi Council of Senior Scholars issued a statement in which it said that the Brotherhood is a terrorist group that does not represent the approach of Islam (..) is perverted against rulers, stirs up discord, conceals religion, and practices violence and terrorism.
And she saw that the Brotherhood did not show its concern for the Islamic faith, nor for the sciences of the Qur’an and Sunnah. Rather, its goal is to reach power, and from its mercy, terrorist groups emerged.
The Saudi Authority did not explain at the time the reason for issuing this statement.
The statement of the Saudi Council of Senior Scholars aroused widespread anger among politicians, activists and human rights defenders in the Arab world, while the Brotherhood responded, in a statement, that it is a reformist advocacy group, not a terrorist group.
The group emphasized that the group’s approach is based on the Book of God and the authentic Sunnah without exaggeration or extremism, and its history attests to that.
In March 2014, the Saudi Ministry of Interior announced the inclusion of the Brotherhood in the list of terrorist organizations, in support of the position of the regime in Egypt at the time, which declared the Brotherhood, in December 2013, a banned and terrorist group, months after the ousting of the late President Mohamed Morsi, who was affiliated with the Brotherhood.
